iran. we have factors put into place here. we're in a general election, and we have governor romney attempting to use the president's words against him regarding israel. i think it is important to note that benjamin netanyahu said under the obama administration these strict sanctions were pult into place, and they have worked. praising, if you will, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust as well, and he believes that action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was coming. we knew that the obama administration and netanyahu specifically did not agree necessarily on the future actions to take. it's been abundantly clear obama has not appreciated having his hand forced by netanyahu. netanyahu has absolutely realized that this is an election season, has been accused probably rightly so of manipulating certain parts of u.s. election system to what he perce
. just as one video seemed to have been the game changer in this election, the 47%er, we still have three debates coming up, where if mitt romney was to do a turn around, he has a chance, starting tuesday -- starting october 3rd in denver, wednesday -- where he has, i think, some of the few chances left to try and figure out a way to turn this around. to explain if there is an explanation for what he really want wants to do that will be more inclusive than that video sent. he has a few chances left if trend is against him but i'm not ready to call it yet. >> i have to say, it does seem over the last 24, 48 hours they do some very specific thing. he's getting out there more. he's been doing a ton of interviews. after all, the criticism early on that he was never there to be interviewed. let me play a little clip from yesterday. >> throughout this campailmpaig well. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in my state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people in this country than that kind of record. >>
the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> reporter: his most expansive comments on what he called the crisis in the middle east. he invoked the memory of one fallen american. >> we must reaffirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens and not by his killers. today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. >> reporter: to the world he offered a lesson in u.s. values. first, denouncing the insighting video. >> a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the maj
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the
is in the state today. they don't spend time in states less than six weeks before an election by accident. >> chris, when we talk about this campaign, how is it possible, karen you weigh in here, how is it possible for mitt romney to win without ohio? there's a very narrow way but he would have to win both virginia and florida, and he's not -- he's not looking so great in those states right now either. >> one of the things -- >> right. >> one of the things that really is clear today also is there's a new mitt romney ad and this shows the real effect of that 47% mistake in the video because here's his first to camera ad, and what he's saying in the ad, is, you know, that he would take care of the middle class. let's listen. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are
in this election season, by the way, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i have to do is wait for that bounce to happen in a couple of minutes days. >> your very kind introduction, i have to admit i really did like the speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. >> reporter: a couple of new polls, by the way, out this morning in the "new york times". just to show you how much of an uphill battle it is for mitt romney. he trails by ten points in the "times" poll, and he trails in florida by nine, savannah. >> chuck todd at the white house for us this morning. thank you. >>> 12 minutes after the hour. once again here's matt. >> savannah, thanks. >>> now the investigation into the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. nbc's ann curry sat down with libya's new president last night for an exclusive interview. >> would you call the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi an act of terrorism? >> i have no doubt about that, and it's a preplanned act of terrorism directed at the american citizens. >> what is
